One of my many many goals for 2016 involves writing more than just the everyday general update on our lives here in Missouri. I really want to venture more into blogging and dig into it a little deeper. Fun posts. Pinterest experiences. Advice. Opinions. Reviews. DIY’s and recipes. We will see where the wind takes me! My thought behind this goal is that by the end of 2016 I will have a better idea of what works, what doesn’t. What I enjoy writing and doing, and what people enjoy reading.
So, without further ado, my first little fun post of 2016! Coupled with the fact that I am half way through my 25th year, and it is hard to believe I am going to be closer to 30 than I am closer to 21 by the end of the year, I figured I would spread some wisdom of things I have learned in my Generation Y life. 🙂 By no means am I an expert at giving advice, and by no means can I give you a guarantee that life with dramatically change if you follow these 25 things. But, what I can say is that, I have learned every single thing from experience at least!
